THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY • TICKETS

Welcome to the Quail Valley Golf Club, host of the 43rd annual golf tournament with a rival club. Just a friendly competition (that’s really a bitter grudge match) that Quail Valley has lost five years in a row. This year is going to change all that! In fact, the Executive Director has bet it all, including his shirt and the deed to his wife’s antique shop, on winning. What could possibly go wrong?

“Three words describe The Fox on the Fairway: hilarious, hilarious, and hilarious.” – The Examiner

A small boy is worried about Mom. She is very sad. Dad says she has forgotten about all the reasons there are to be happy. So the little boy starts a list (in crayon) to remind her of every brilliant thing in life: “Ice Cream,” “Rollercoasters,” “Star Trek!” As he grows, so does the list, taking on a life of its own, until it changes everything....

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious, and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” — The Guardian

Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Now, she’s wearing stained yoga pants and trying to remember when she last showered, all while she soothes a screaming newborn. Jessie’s back yard is where new moms (and one newbie Dad who feels a little lost), baby monitors in hand, meet in a sleep-deprived haze for some desperately needed adult conversation.

“Best show in town.” – The Chicago Tribune

JEEVES SAVES THE DAY • TICKETS

Bertie Wooster’s tranquil holiday by the seaside is shattered when his dreaded Aunt Agatha shows up uninvited, dragging along his feckless cousin, Egbert Bakewell (good old “Eggs and Bacon”). Add an accidental engagement, a seance, and a visit from Sir Roderick Glossop, and disasters start to pile up, one on top of another... Fortunately, there is Jeeves.
